Boe rate cut lifts European stocks futures

LONDON, March 11 (Reuters) - Futures for London's blue chip index FTSE 100 jumped in early trading on Wednesday after the Bank of England cut interest rates by half a percent to bolster Britain's economy against disruption caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

Futures for other European bourses, such as Germany's DAX or Paris' CAC 40 were up 0.5% and 1.3% respectively. (Julien Ponthus)
